…Salt Lake City, that is!
J&L visited Salt Lake City this weekend to celebrate the dynamic duo of birthdays for J’s brothers. A fun time was had by all, except for when we were in the car – approximately 15 hours each way (we made a stop in Eastern Washington at J’s parents house). We learned a few things on this road trip. We learned, for example that when you turn South on 84 from Rupert, Idaho that there aren’t many pit stops between Rupert and Salt Lake City. That’s why we got this many miles on my 12 gallon tank and nearly had to push it into Snowville, UT – thank goodness for Snowville and my gas-friendly Toyota!
We also learned that fires on the highway cause backups and that when you roll down the window to take photos of said fire that it…is…very…*hot*!
Thankfully, nobody was hurt! We also learned that the UofUtah has a beautiful campus and that with the Wasatch Mountains as a backdrop, SLC is one of the prettiest cities around! We can’t wait to go back for our ski trip in January!
Happy birthday, brothers!
Check back throughout this week and next as we *finally* upload pictures on our Photos tab! Even though we are nowhere close to being done with furnishing, painting, and/or repairing our house, it will be a fun exercise to see where we were, where we are, and where we’re going!
